Wellington (N.Z.). City Council

WCC

Until the local Government Act of 1974, the administrative body for Wellington city was legally the Wellington City Corporation. Officially the term 'Council' referred to the mayor and councillors only.

In 1974, the Local Government Act was introduced and the Council was then constituted under this. As a result of the Local Government Amendment (No.3) Act 1977, the corporate body became known as Wellington City Council, effectively the same as the body consisting of the Mayor and Councillors.
